Phenotypic effect of anti-ftsZ PNA on cell morphology of MRSA and MRSP. a Swollen cells (purple arrow), an expected phenotypic effect of FtsZ were observed in Z46-treated cultures, while untreated and scrZ-treated cultures appeared normal. A larger number of Z46-treated cells stained pink (red arrow) compared to scrZ-treated cells; untreated cells did not stain pink. Scale bar = 1 μm. b Gram stained cells from three frames were counted with Image J and mean ± SD values are shown
